‘Il cervello è il mio secondo organo preferito’: così afferma Woody Allen in uno dei suoi celebri aforismi. Del resto, la parola più usata dalle decine di persone intervistate per la stesura di questo libro, alle quali è stato chiesto di definire uno tra i più amati cineasti del mondo, è stata ‘genio’. Gente che ha lavorato con lui o ha avuto l’opportunità di conoscerlo molto da vicino, persone che parlano con cognizione di causa, anche se ovviamente Allen non è d’accordo: ‘Io un genio? Allora cosa sono Shakespeare, Mozart o Einstein? No, no, sono solo un comico di Brooklyn che nella vita ha avuto molta fortuna’. Natalio Grueso racconta della gentilezza e grande umiltà del maestro, che, superati gli ottant’anni, non smette di dedicarsi a ciò che più ama – il cinema, la scrittura e il jazz – e rifugge i red carpet, considerando i premi oggetti fatti per ‘prendere polvere’. Un grande genio comico che ha debuttato come ghostwriter e come cabarettista prima di diventare il riferimento della cinematografia del ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo, senza dimenticare le sue origini e i grandi maestri che lo hanno forgiato quando si infilava nei vecchi cinema della sua giovinezza per ammirare i capolavori di Bergman e del neorealismo. Una passione, questa, che condivide con l’autore a cui è legato da una ventennale amicizia, che ha avuto il privilegio di seguire in prima persona la sua storia personale e professionale. Ne nasce un ritratto assolutamente inedito, intimo, sulla sua carriera, le sue fobie, i suoi hobby – tra cui una poco conosciuta passione per la magia – e sul suo modo di lavorare e concepire la vita.

Con motivo del 80 cumpleaños de Woody Allen, Natalio Grueso, amigo íntimo del cineasta, escribe un libro cómplice y personal sobre el genio neoyorquino, imprescindible para la inmensa legión de seguidores que tiene en todo el mundo. Woody Allen es una de las personalidades más importantes de la cultura de nuestro tiempo. Cineasta, dramaturgo y escritor, tras Chaplin y Groucho Marx, es el último de los grandes maestros de la comedia y la inteligencia aplicada al séptimo arte. Este libro nos muestra al genio neoyorquino en su faceta menos pública y nos invita a conocer un Woody más cercano e íntimo a través de testimonios exclusivos de quienes han tenido el privilegio de conocerlo personalmente y trabajar con él a lo largo de su carrera: desde su pasión temprana por la magia y el humor hasta sus filias y fobias sobre cine, música o literatura pasando por anécdotas inéditas de sus rodajes y sus estancias en España. Algunas frases de Woody Allen: «Mi cerebro es mi segundo órgano favorito.» «La última vez que estuve dentro de una mujer fue cuando visité la Estatua de la Libertad.» «En Beverly Hills no tiran la basura, la convierten en televisión.» «Odio la realidad, pero es el único sitio donde se puede comer un buen filete.» «Más que vivir en el corazón de la gente, me gustaría seguir viviendo en mi apartamento.» «Por alguna razón me aprecian más en Francia que aquí. Los subtítulos deben de ser realmente buenos.» «No puedo escuchar tanto Wagner, ¿sabes? Me entran ganas de invadir Polonia.» «No es que tenga miedo a morirme, es tan solo que no quiero estar allí cuando suceda.» «Me interesa el futuro porque es el lugar donde voy a pasar el resto de mi vida.»

Jan Kozma's translation of Marianna Sirca is the near-literal rendering of a novel written by Grazia Deledda (1871-1936), the celebrated Italian author from Sardinia who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1926. Almost all of Deledda's stories treat the lives, loves, tragedies, and triumphs of the author's native land - the remote, isolated, and often forbidding island of Sardinia. This new translation includes an introduction that highlights the salient episodes of Grazia Deledda's life and which situates Marianna Sirca both literarily within the author's opera omnia and as part of the general literary trends of the early European twentieth century. Jan Kozma presents the homonymous protagonist, Marianna Sirca, as one of the great literary precursors of the liberated, independent, modern woman - an ironic twist, given the repressive culture in which Marianna lives. The translator also provides numerous explanatory foot-notes that elucidate particular arcane aspects of Sardinian life in the late nineteenth century. Marianna Sirca is a 30-year-old woman of inherited wealth who lives in Nuoro, Sardinia. Because of her strong will and sense of independence, Marianna is the family "black sheep" - refusing to be married off to a distant relative in a social arrangement of convenience. Instead Marianna becomes involved with Simone Sole, a younger man who was a servant in the Sirca household in his youth and who is now an outlaw - wanted for banditry. Against the will of her entire family, the lovers plan to marry, but at Marianna's insistence only after Simone "gets right with the law." The novel traces the story of these two emarginated lovers through various twists and turns, ending with a typical Deleddan flourish that leaves the reader with a real awareness of Sardinian, social mores, values, attitudes, and tradition.

In this novel, Enrique Vila-Matas traces a journey connecting the worlds of Joyce and Beckett, and all they symbolize. One night, a renowned and now retired literary publisher has a vivid dream that takes place in Dublin, a city he’s never visited. The central scene of the dream is a funeral in the era of Ulysses. The publisher would give anything to know if an unidentified character in his dream is the great author he always wanted to meet, or the ghostly angel who abandoned him during childhood. As the days go by, he will come to understand that his vision of the end of an era was prophetic. Enrique Vila-Matas traces a journey that connects the worlds of Joyce and Beckett, revealing the difficulties faced by literary authors, publishers, and good readers in a society where literature is losing influence. A robust work, Dublinesque is a masterwork of irony, humor, and erudition by one of Spain’s most celebrated living authors.

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.
